Keep up with Dwell


Welcome to our winter newsletter. We aim to send newsletters at least every six months and gosh, those six months seem to go fast as we always do so much in that time. This newsletter talks about some of our activities and achievements.

In between newsletters don’t forget to follow us on Facebook as we post regular updates on our work and other items that are of interest to our many stakeholders. Also remember to check out our website which has regular news items and updates.

Keep warm and keep in touch.

The other two homes will be affordable rentals and we will be receiving income related rent subsidies for them.
